Market Day

Our MEF IS Ist'b Primary School Grade 2 students hosted a "Market Day" style fundraiser to benefit Ryan's Well Foundation on Friday, 26 May. Our students read Ryan and Jimmy and the Well in Africa that Brought Them Together  as part of our PYP unit of inquiry about water as a limited resource for many people. Our students had empathy for children who have to walk a long way every day to get water for their family. The 2B class talked to Ryan through Skype and he encouraged the students to take action. The students raised over 1,000TL to help build a well in Burkina Faso.
